    Whenever i try to go to Standby Mode in Windows XP, the computer tell me it cannot go into Standby mode because I need to update my driver for my video card.

    I have a ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP 2X. When I went to the ATI website, I was unable to find the drivers for this exact card. Can you please tell me where I can go and get the exact drivers.

    Thanks.

    I installed the driver but I get the same problem.

    Also it was telling me not to install it because the driver are not digitally signed by Microsoft for Windows XP.

    Do you know what else the problem can be?

    Thanks in advance

    The video card under the display drivers is called Rage Pro Turbo AGP 2X. Also there are no yellow "!" marks anywhere.

    The version for this driver is 5.10.2600.6010. It also says under Digital Signer : Not digitally signed.

    I hope you can help me. Thanks for all your help so far.

    Okay

    This is the card, RAGE PRO TURBO

    http://www.ati.com/companyinfo/press/1998/4109.html

    And this is the page for the drivers:

    http://www.ati.com/support/products...S=Windows+XP&cboProducts=RAGE+PRO&cmdNext=GO!

    If you notice, the top one is the main driver, 5.1.2001.0, and the version you have, 5.10.2600.6010, is Not WHQL Certified.

    This is definatly the drivers for you, as this is the cards it supports:

    ALL-IN-WONDER PRO
    [email protected]
    [email protected] (RAGE PRO)
    [email protected]
    XPERT XL
    XPERT 98 (RAGE PRO)
    RAGE PRO
    RAGE PRO TURBO
    RAGE XL
    RAGE XC

    However, if you look at this, this explains it all:

    Thanks Eddie for all your help.

    I guess this problem cant be resolved as per the document I read below.

    I did though update my display driver with the drivers from the Windows XP cd and I get the same problem.
